four to flip in my mind are connecticut, west virginia, california and nevada. and if you pull delaware out of the equation, that means republicans have to win two of those four that identify. west virginia, connecticut, nevada and california. they are frankly all a tad uphill in one form or another. i agree. they can get there. it's just a little bit harder if you pull delaware out of the equation. >> i'll tell you a fact we're not including. so many progressives i know are despondant. they don't think barack obama is perfect. that's my view. they're view is he's not reaching their goals. that will be a question how that turnout occurs. if only the red hot right votes, look out, everybody. that includes boxer, patty murray, the governor of west virginia. they could all go if only people voting are the red hot right and everybody else states home or goes to the movies or sits home with the rain. >>> coming up, no country for old republicans. the far right is on the rise and when a candidate like mike castle is no longer safe in a state like delaware, you want to know just what's going o

to fairfax, virginia, backyard where people expressed concerns about jobs and other economic issues. composed of friendly audiences the events represented middle class so-called real people. >> you're in a bubble. when you are president. and sometimes you just don't have the opportunity to have the kind of interactions that i used to have even when i was a senator. and so, these kind of formats are terrific for me. >> but next monday mr. obama is scheduled to be in a town hall made for tv event at museum in washington and cnbc will televise it and they encourage the alumni club of washington, d.c. to invite members to attend. well-known princeton graduates in washington are first lady michelle obama and supreme court justice sonia sotomayor and elena kagan. alumni alert says, "we are looking to capture the sentiment of the nation ahead of the mid-term elections." at the end the invitation says, "please write a question you would like to ask or have answered by the president." >> was the white house aware they were being invited to attend the event and their questions were prescreened? >> i ho
virginia fighting for his life trying to get elected to robert byrd's senate seat thought they should be extend. i've introduced permanent law current tax rate and avoid a tax increase in the middle of a investigation. >> greta: give me a realistic timetable. what is gonna happen ? >> it is hard to answer the hypothetical, because the democrats are in the majority. they got to decide whether they want to have this debate now. it could occur after the election. if they want to have the debate now about the appropriateness of raising taxes in the middle of a recession we are happy to have that debate. >> greta: it is not going to happen is that the message? >> i done know i think it will be up to the majority to decide whether we have this debate now or later. it needs to be had, because at the end of the year, taxes will go up for everyone, none of us think that's a good idea. >> greta: what about what leader boehner said in the house? he said i hate to try to quote him often top of my head, he said if he had to or something, if it came to that, he would vote for limiting the extension
? the probability is no. there are other places, like west virginia and other places, that three weeks ago we never thought was on the radar screen so -- >> a big point everybody around her makes and some republicans who aren't so sure make is, wait a minute, you know, all of the idiots who say she can't win in november are the same idiots who said she couldn't win last night. >> right. >> first, i find it interesting that michael steele is making so much sense and he's now going against the same establishment that never liked him. and so what, now tea partiers are going to rally around steele? so, this is -- what's so intriguing about this whole deal is it sort of reminds me of democrats and alvin greene in south carolina. it's like, where did this person even come from? what is going on here? >> well, you know, they know where she came from because they spent a lot of money trying to defeat her. today, after telling all of us we're not going to give her a dime, suddenly today, right, they gave her $42,000, which is the max they're aloud. i talked to a senior republican strategist who's doing a lo
, virginia, is former governor tim kaine, who is now chairman of the democratic national committee. thank you, governor -- thank you, mr. chairman, for joining us. i want to start out talking about health care reform. you think democrats should be out there bragging about it. so what do you make of the democrats who are putting out those ads, bragging that they voted against it? >> well, candy, i travel all over the country. i guess i've been in about 42 states. and most democrats i see on the trail are very proud of the accomplishment and they're talking about it. but you're right, some, particularly house members in districts that, you know, can often get gerrymandered and become tough districts are distancing themselves from the health care bill. i don't tell people how to run their races, but i've been on a ballot seven times and won seven races, and in my experience, you ought to be proud of what you're doing and promote the accomplishments. now, obviously, folks who voted against health care, they're going to talk about why. but i think for the democratic party, generally, this signific
's get straight to this tax fight. president obama went out to the fairfield, virginia, doing a little town hall in a backyard. and he was making his case that the you should keep tax cuts for those families making $250,000 anbew, and those making more than that should pay more. number one, the president says that's only fair. number two, he says, we can't afford it because red ink. >> but we can't give away $700 billion to folks who don't need it a think somehow that we're going to balance our budget. it's not gog to hapn. >> one intere, ing int, freddy, to the democrat the first, in the audience, as the president did, that was the local congressman jerry conley. if you go to jerry conley's website, democrat,ni rrengior re-election, a little nervous. probably okay, but probably a little nervous. on his website, he's also a handful of democrats who support extending the bush taxes cut while the economy continues to recover, a position "the wall streu journal" calls reasonable. you have a president in the backyard with a congressman who disagrees with him. >> i think as the voters sta
, pennsylvania, indiana, north dakota, arkansas, wisconsin, connecticut, west virginia, we're competitive in a lot of places. will we win them all? who knows. the delaware primary was interesting. new candidate, fresh face, i think she's got a good chance of winning. >> i mean she definitely wasn't your candidate. i mean basically they -- one would say that the public -- >> you picked out one. i just gave you 12 places where we have a chance of beating democrats. >> what are the qualification qualifications -- do they have? for instance, what is christine o'donnell's qualification for governing? what is sharron angle's actual qualification for governing? >> they won the primary fair and square against real competition and they ee americaed as the nominee. and sharron angle is running no worse than dead even against the majority leader of the senate. i think that's pretty significant. >> you're not afraid there might be a turnoff whether it's -- >> am i afraid of having more republicans in the senate? of course, not. >> that's not the question. are you not afraid that somewhat -- some migh
of west virginia, he wants to be a democratic senator, just yesterday, he came out and said tax cuts should be held in place. he joins people like joe lieberman, ben nelson of nebraska, bill nelson of florida, jim webb of virginia, all these are moderate democrats. how do you buck that trend when these people are drib ling out by the day? >> you're exactly right, bill. if the conservative -- the conservative democrats are worried, they understand that what's been driving this conversation for the longest time has been that the white house has not been paying sufficient attention to the economy, that the unemployment numbers remain high, and that most americans are pessimistic about what the future holds, and this is everything from the tax hike to the decifit. but for the moment, what we saw last week was the president going on the offensive and saying where are the ideas, where is the help coming from with republicans and the white house has forced congressman boehner to say he would agree to tax cuts even if it meant the tax cuts for the rich weren't coming through. that as you kno
. >> reporter: the president met with middle-class voters in fairfax, virginia. >> i'm a massage therapist. >> i've got a crick in my neck right here. >> i bet you do. >> reporter: and there he continued to push the idea that republicans have a stranglehold on a middle-class tax cut and are holding it hostage until it's extended to wealthier americans as well. >> because wages and incomes had flatlined for middle-class families, they should definitely get an extension of the tax cuts that were instituted in 2001, 2003. >> reporter: over the weekend house republican leader john boehner essentially gave in, saying he'd go along with continuing those bush tax cuts for middle-class voters even if the cuts for higher wage earners are allowed to expire. >> if the only option i have is to vote for some of those tax reductions, i'll vote for them. >> reporter: but leader boehner realized he was out on a limb all by himself. senate republican leader mitch mcconnell said senate republicans are united against any tax increase. >> only in washington could someone propose a tax hike as an antidote to a reces
bus tour in virginia told republicans to rally behind o'donnell. >> i don't know if she can win until we try. how can you claim defeat before you attempt victory. this makes no sense. it makes no sense. so stop it. stop it. >> okay. a lot of negativity there. meanwhile o'donnell and sarah palin are fighting back against those questioning her chances, specifically former bush adviser karl rove. >> i am perplexed about what's going on with karl rove. all he has to do is go to my website and he sees all those accusations that he's continuing to put out are not true. i am very perplexed and n wonder does he want a democrat in that seat? >> i have nothing against karl rove personally. he's the expect. but, bill, some of these folks they are saying that people like christinew3 o'donnell and other tea party americans, can't win because they don't want them to win, because they know a christine o'donnell, a joe miller from alaska in gubernatorial races like suzanna martinez and nikki haley, these folks are going to shake it up, some of those in the hierarchy of the political machine and on bo
are going to unveil tomorrow in virginia sort of their blueprint, their game plan, what they're going to do if they take control of congress. there's going to be a couple nods to the tea party movement in that platform that's unveiled tomorrow. they recognize this is a powerful group that will help propel them into power certainly in the house. >> and the thing is, again, this tea party movement is so much like the pro movement. for some reason you bring that up and people are always, no, no, it's worse. but the perot people were talking about the same thing, limited government, the constituti constitution, didn't want excessive engagement overseas. that's where sarah palin splits from the tea party. tea party are a lot like ron paul and pat buchanan and the perot people. they don't think we should be fighting wars all over the world. i'm in one accord for them. you can't be for small government at home and be for massive intervention overseas. sarah palin, i don't know that there's a war that's been fought over the past 20 years that sarah palin didn't like. >> if you spend any time at all
in virginia where he was taking questions on the economy. >> they should definitely get an extension of the tax cuts that were instituted in 2001-2003. we could get that done this week. but we're still in this wrestling match with john boehner and mitch mcconnell about the last 2-3% where on average, weighed be giving them $100,000 for people making a million dollar or more. >> a chief medicare specialist is criticizing the obama's administration's projections on the effects of the health care overhaul predicting it will save less money than supporters have argued. in addition, he says numbers provided on a white house blog last week that indicates spending per insured person will be $1,000 lower in the year 2019 because of the law are in fact not quote meaningful or accurate. >>> and the u.s. government says it will not pay the prison bail for american higher sarah shourd, who iran says it will release on health grounds in exchange for $500,000. earlier yesterday, shourd's family asked to have the bail reduced, saying they couldn't afford it. we'll follow that. tony blair, next on "
say that at that backyard in northern virginia yesterday. you know, he said that -- i'm in this wrestling match with john boehner, but boehner was the one who came out on sunday sounding like he was ready to make a deal. are we making a deal? or are we having a wrestling match here? it's interesting to hear the president come out and say that. couldn't the minority leader argue he was simply trying to govern? >> no, certainly -- certainly he could argue that. and what you will hear from his aides is that he was trying to undercut a white house argument that obviously they were fearful was taking hold. and that is that republicans are holding tax cuts for the middle class hostage for tax cuts for the wealthy. but what you're hearing from republicans sources on this is that perhaps boehner tipped his hand a little too soon. that this was something he could've held out on as they argue for this. obviously in the house, the republicans don't have a whole lot of control about what's going to pass. and there are a lot of democrats who, you know, feel the way republicans do a
reporter joe joe wall. this is a smaller event at a hardware store in serling, virginia. republican leaders are going to meet with small business owners and come out and have a press conference, very different from the contract, also, because that was a very specific list of 20 agenda items. this is going to be about 20. that was 10. this will be about 20. it will be focused on things that voters care about this year, like small businesses, like jobs and things like that and will talk about how they would run the house of representatives differently if they were in charge. this is brand new. cnn has learned first. it is on the ticker. for the rest of what's crossing on the ticker, i turn it over to mark preston. >>> other stories crossing right now, while they might be unified over that agenda they'll release on thursday, whether or not unified republicans is in alaska. lisa murkowski decided to run as a write-in candidate. she was on "state of the union" with candy crowley. she says she's a victim of a smear campaign and is going to run even though she doesn't have the backing of the repub
candidate lost. and he went to the virginia and his candidate lost. >> massachusetts. >> and went to massachusetts and his candidate lost. now he's coming to connecticut. why? because the latest poll out this morning had linda mcmahon, the republican, only down by 6 points. so even in just the last day or so, she is increasing her lead or lack thereof but it's getting closer. the president is putting himself on the line again. >> she was getting crushed and she's coming back and she's got money and real life business experience. more and more the story of this election is about business and coming back. by the way, it's two fund-raisers, one for the party and the other directly for blumenthal over in connecticut. it's not going to be public. not going to take q and a. here is mrs. mcmahon. >> i believe that richard blumenthal said he misstated his service. >> so many times? you believe that? >> i don't. i think it was a pattern of deception. he said is over and over again. >> columnists say he simply flat out lied. can't find it within himself to tell the truth. >> also now portra
did in virginia, massachusetts and new jersey. >> don't forget the olympics. he came up zero on all those things. here's a guy who lied about his military service and he will be honored essentially by the inclusion of the commander in chief in private, not going to be in public. >> unlike the other ones, he said give me a hug, jon corzine, get over here, i'm going to -- >> pose for this picture. >> raising money for the connecticut, for the democratic party in connecticut and now it's for blumenthal in particular to try to get some money behind him. >> let's talk about what's going on in pennsylvania with the homeland security list. you know what that is. that's for terrorists, right? supposed terrorists with the e potential to blow up buildings and airplanes, apparently the people who ended up on the war for anti-tax people, right? >> right. >> people against taxes. how would that happen? >> in particular, that fella right there and gene stilt is the fella who travels around to different events on the capital area of pennsylvania with a 25 foot high inflatable pig. >> right. >>
it. >> all right. well, pat buchanan, you let out a rebel yell last night in mcclain, virginia, heard all the way down to vienna. why were you so excited about this victory in delaware that will certainly, almost certainly assure that harry reid, if he wins in nevada, will be the majority leader for two more years? >> it was the heart, not the head responding. the truth is -- no, that's the truth. look, here's a very attractive young woman, fresh and maybe she's not schooled, et cetera, but she's knocked off somebody, a big rockefeller republican, the greatest night of her life. and you've got to rejoice with her, and rove's attitude, his analysis may be spot-on, but his attitude looked contemptuous, to me. and i'll tell you, my guess is this morning, people that look at that karl rove, if we run the whole clip, i don't see how you respond positively to that. i mean, i think what romney has to do and people like that is to say, look, we can't win without these folks with us. they won this one. let's go down there and help them. we lost. we may not have liked it. but let's get together
